Oh snap, summer just got a whole lot sassier. Today, Bristol producer Julio Bashmore released “She Ain’t,” a new single from his debut album Knockin’ Boots. Vocalist Julie Mendoza sneers, “She ain’t fuckin around”– and neither is this track. A high energy anthem, it features classic house claps, spinning vocal “ohhhh’s,” cymbals dancing through the track like shooting stars, bouncy bass and funky disco licks reminiscent of mid-90s Chicago house gods Derrick Carter and DJ Sneak. “She Ain’t” channels RuPaul’s early 90’s drag house classic “Super Model” with its sassy lyrics demanding “you better work, bitch!” It’s a catchy track that is definitely gonna be heating up dance floors everywhere. Check it out, below.
